A novel bacterium, designated strain RR4-38 (= KCTC 52651 = DSM 108068), belonging to the family Flavobacteriaceae was isolated from a biofilter in the seawater recirculating aquaculture system in South Korea. A single complete genome contig which is 3,182,272 bp with 41.9% G+C content was generated using PacBio RS II platform. The genome includes 2,829 protein-coding genes, 6 rRNA genes, 38 tRNA genes, 4 non-coding RNA genes, and 9 pseudogenes. The results will provide insights for understanding microbial activity in the seawater recirculating aquaculture system.
